      1.) when I was somewhere between 6 and 9, I found out that scientists think the universe expands forever. This thought freaked me out so much that it kept me awake some nights, and I would get out of bed and tell my parents that I couldn’t sleep because I kept thinking about “how the universe goes on forever” and how much it freaked me out. Imagine having to respond that as a parent - your kid is having a philosophical-astronomical-existential crisis. I wasn’t afraid anything would happen to me or anything, but the idea that space just keeps going in all directions seemed so impossible and enormous to me. 2.) Once I got over that fear, a new one came along - age 9-11ish. I usually avoided Are You Afraid of the Dark, but for some reason I saw the episode with the creepy clown doll that kept appearing everywhere even after the characters got rid of it and haunting them. I was really afraid that it would show up in the toilet while I was sitting on it and some how “get me” from below. At least this taught me how to squat above the toilet - a skill I still use as a woman who sometimes has to use nasty public bathrooms. At least something good came out of that.

      I went to the liberty science center and saw many omnimax movies there and never had that thought but it is HILARIOUS to think about now! especially since the shape of the screen made you feel like you were actually soaring over the mountains, to the point that people sometimes got motion sickness. I think the readers of this comment who are NOT Northern NJ natives appreciate the image you included. Rolling down the turnpike… while you were in it… thank you for sharing bahahaha

      we’re not talking about the breast cancer awareness jersey that the players wear maybe once a season if they do at all. we’re talking about the fact that every team sells pink jerseys all year long thinking that females won’t buy it if it only comes in team colors. come on! what fan would wear a jersey that’s anything BUT the team colors?!? and if you’re not a big fan, you’re not shelling out the money for the pink jerseys. the only money they must make on those is for the 0.01% of women that only wear pink and the idiot husbands who think it’s what their wife wants.

      troy and abed are fantastic. they should at least be given free reign of the today show for a week - ratings would go up 200%. matt lauer, your days are numbered…. ron swanson’s food travel show could also have DIY segments about carpentry and such. like he travels to a new country, eats their food and critiques his meals and the citizens, and then uses the unique, native trees to create a rocking chair or other such item for a lucky fan. even if it’s illegal to cut down those trees. ESPECIALLY if it’s illegal to cut down those trees. i want to hear ron swanson’s opinion of everything in the world.

      Ellie Hall, I have to say, I always LOVE reading and re-reading just about everything you post. Maybe it’s because I am a fellow Class of ‘10 Domer so our interests are aligned already, but your articles are always interesting and exciting (or should I say I am shamefully excited, as in this case, royal baby gossip is a guilty pleasure). Hope your career takes you lots of wonderful places and keep up the good work at Buzzfeed! GO IRISH!

      while your argument is sound, backed by your own experience, there are two flaws. 1.) the school didn’t mention anything about her getting tackled. they said it was about “impure thoughts” and “locker room culture.” if they had used your argument, they might not be getting SO much flak for it, but it still wouldn’t make her removal from the team acceptable. to a lesser extent, 2.) the fact that some males may be uncomfortable tackling her would actually be an advantage on the field against other teams. and again, it isn’t her problem, it’s the boys problem. once they miss a few tackles against a girl and their coach calls them on it or pulls them from the game, they’ll figure out real quick that it’s just like tackling anybody else. as a Christian I am ashamed that this school is not being a faithful witness to God’s love. Institutions like that are what give Christianity a bad name, when there are plenty of us living joyful, peaceful, unoffensive lives. While we are called to stand up for our faith, this is not what our faith stands for. Why spread hate? Jesus is LOVE. Period, end of story, that’s all folks.

      honestly, asanon-gamer (as in,Ionly ever played cartoon character games, racing games, and stayed far away from first person shooters) withawii in my household,iused the game console mostly for watching netflix. i’d play games here or there, but the multifunctionality was what appealed to me asanon-gamer. easy to operate, customizable, “new” in terms of the wii motion remote, that’s whatiwas in it for. gaming companies need to realize that gamers will always want high performing games, but their business is entertainment. if they don’t quickly start appealing to greater audiences, they will die out, especially as games like “halo” and “call of duty” get repetitive with continued sequels. they aren’t making consoles to make gamers happy. they are making consoles to make money. the faster they realize that their business is evolving, the better. to compare to another industry, take american car manufacturers vs. japanese. the japanese embraced fuel economy and hybrid engines YEARS ago, making them the star players of their lines, while continuing to offer options to more niche markets. american car makers ignored it, refusing to see it as the future of car manufacturing, assuming consumers would want what they always wanted: bigger, more powerful, etc. They eventually caught on, but by then it was too late, and they literally had to ask the government for help to stay afloat. Microsoft, like the Japanese auto industry, is ahead of the curve in seeking innovation to widen their market share past the very self-contained world of gamers.

      don’t leave the toilet seat all wet. (I’m talking to ladies in public restrooms. wipe that $#*! up.)  also, flush before leaving the bathroom. no one wants to flush for you. if you clog the toilet, or notice the toilet is clogged, do something about it or tell someone. don’t just leave it like that. you are just as culpable even if you didn’t do it if you know it’s clogged and do nothing. and never use comic sans.
